Two part Coleman Hawkins audio interview

Here are two audio interviews with the great tenor Coleman Hawkins I found on YouTube. There are no notes stating when the interview is from or who the interviewer is—if anyone has any info, please let me know, and if I come across other info I’ll update. Hawkins speaks about being born at sea, playing dances when he was young, and not finishing a gig at Jimmy’s Chicken Shack until three in the afternoon.
